Iftar Dua

As Ramadan approaches once again, Muslims prepare for the holiest and most blessed month in their calendar. Throughout the month, they devote themselves to worship and prayer. The mercy of Allah Ta’ala is abundant. Certain times during Ramadan hold special significance to Allah, and during these times, He is especially receptive to the Duas of His servants. One such sacred time is the time of iftar, when believers ask Allah for something after fasting all day. Praying and asking Allah at iftar is therefore crucial for all Muslims.

Praying at Iftar is a Sunnah, or a practice established by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The Prophet himself used to pray during Iftar, and so it is recommended for all Muslims to remember Allah during this time. Allah favors the time of Iftar and accepts Duas made at this time. It is important to break the fast at the right time, and before doing so, it is best to recite the Sunnah Dua that the Prophet used to recite. The Iftar Dua is:

Iftar Dua (in Arabic):

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ صُمْتُ وَعَلَى رِزْقِكَ أَفْطَرْتُ

Iftar Dua (Pronunciation): Allahumma laka chumtu wa ala rizqika aftartu

Iftar Dua (Meaning): O Allah! For you I have fasted, breaking the fast by your sustenance. (Abu Dawud, Chapter Sawm)

While it is preferable to recite supplications mentioned in the Quran and Hadith during Iftar, any personal prayer can also be offered during this sacred time. The most crucial aspect is to remember to pray during Iftar.

According to a Hadith, there is another supplication that can be recited when breaking or after breaking the fast. Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Umar Radiyallahu Anhu reported that Rasulullah (SAW) used to recite the following supplication at the time of breaking the fast:

Dua during or after Iftar (in Arabic):

ذَهَبَ الظَّمَاءُ وَابْتَلَتِ الْعُرُوْقُ وَ ثَبَتَ الْأَجْرُ اِنْ شَاءَ اللهُ

Dua during or after Iftar (Pronunciation): Jahabaz Jamau; Wabatalatil U’ruku; Wa Chabatal Azru Inshallah.

Dua during or after Iftar (Meaning): (Through Iftar) thirst is quenched, veins are moistened, and if Allah wills, the reward is fixed (Abu Dawud, Mishkat).

The supplications during iftar time mentioned in the Hadith highlight the importance of Dua during this sacred time.

Iftar Dua

Allah Ta’ala is pleased when His servants ask for forgiveness and express gratitude during Iftar. It is a time when Duas are accepted, and thus, it is essential to seek forgiveness for one’s mistakes during this holy month. Iftar holds great significance in the virtues and blessings of Ramadan, and it is considered a vital act of worship.

Muslims should observe Iftar carefully and responsibly. As it is the responsibility of all believers to work towards attaining the pleasure of Allah during the month of Ramadan. Maintaining the full dignity of Iftar is crucial in achieving this goal. Therefore, it is important to follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and recite the Duas mentioned in the Hadith during Iftar. In doing so, one can strengthen their faith and develop a deeper connection with Allah Ta’ala. So Duas are an important part of Iftar.
